Wound healing in South Nashville

Chronic and non-healing wounds require specialized care. If you or someone you love is experiencing issues with these types of wounds, visit TriStar Southern Hills Advanced Wound and Vascular Center. We provide dedicated care, such as hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT), to treat wounds and help you return to full health.

Each patient's medical needs and history are uniquely their own, which makes it essential to care for their wounds with a treatment plan that is equally specific to them. That is why we tailor care to every individual's diagnosis using a multidisciplinary approach. Our wound care experts also prioritize communication and education, which helps keep our patients informed throughout the treatment process.

Types of wounds we treat

Our wound care specialists are proud to offer advanced therapies and patient-focused procedures. This approach is designed to speed healing and help our patients recover from any type of wound. Some of the wounds we treat are:

  • Bone infections
  • Compromised grafts and flaps
  • Crush injuries
  • Gangrene
  • Infected wounds
  • Necrotizing infections (flesh-eating disease)
  • Non-healing surgical wounds
  • Pressure injuries
  • Soft tissue infections
  • Tissue or bone loss (osteoradionecrosis) caused by radiation
  • Ulcers (diabetes-related and others)

Dedicated wound therapy

There are various causes for non-healing wounds, each of which requires specific care and is typically referred to as "wound therapy." Wound therapy aims to prevent complications, such as infections or amputation.

We also use this type of care to help our patients avoid the need for hospitalization. There are a variety of advanced treatments available to speed healing by stimulating cell growth. These include:

  • Bioengineered skin substitutes (using bioengineered material for skin grafts)
  • Therapeutic dressing materials (dressing material designed to facilitate wound care)
  • Antimicrobial topical therapies (topical treatment to protect against fungi, viruses or bacteria)
  • HBOT (using air pressure to increase the amount of oxygen your lungs can gather, which encourages the growth of new blood vessels)
